040/365 Kota Kinabalu abstract sunset

One for yesterday… ūüėČ

Looking through my images to see what to post next, ¬†I found this one which I completely forgot about taking.¬† Utilising a slow shutter speed and panning movement,¬†I captured a variety of images¬†using different shutter speeds.¬† I’ve done this in the past with wide angle lenses such as the 17-40mm or 24-70mm but this one was taken with my 500mm!¬† It shows you can do landscape photogrpahy with a supertelephoto! This is one of my favourites and has a very soothing quality about it.¬† Maybe its the smoothness of the scene or just the pastel like colours. I hope you like it as much as I do.
